Red Bull follows pro bodyboarder Hugo Pinheiro as he braves the freezing waters of Iceland.
When most people think of surfing and bodyboarding, they think of sunny beaches, warm weather and blue seas. But for Hugo, he wants something totally different. He’s travelling to the wintery country of Iceland to find the perfect wave. Most bodyboarders prefer smaller, stronger barrels, as they’re more suited to the style of surfing that bodyboarders use. So the icy country might not be known for its big waves, but it could be a hidden gem for people like Hugo. Will it deliver the goods?
In this doc, we follow Hugo as he searches out the perfect spot. The extreme weather here means that you can only go out in the water at certain times, or risk being swept away. The guys spend days waiting for the right conditions. Will Hugo be able to find that perfect wave that he’s looking for? Is Iceland a secret bodyboarding paradise? Watch the brilliant doc from Red Bull and find out for yourself.
